Am I the last one to see this T-Mobile Welcome Back clip? It is awesome. I think the flashmob ad campaign is rusty. But, in this instance, who cares? I love it! What would you think if you came off a plane home – to that?!? I love the people’s surprised faces. Ironically, they are real. Seriously. It is live filming. The reactions are from true witnesses – filmed by 18 hidden cameras. I like the range of the music selected. The ‘vocal orchestra’ peformand is spectacular: “At Last” by Etta James, “Comin’ Home Baby” by Mel Torme, “Return of the Mack” by Mark Morrison, “I am the Passenger” by Iggy Pop and “I Knew You Were Waiting (for me)” by George Michael & Aretha Franklin.

I like everything about this commercial, Saatchi & Saatchi London rocked it.

Nice work, T-Mobile.

They’re baackkkk. The singing pirates are back in the New Car Commercial. And, I love it. This barnstorm of commercials is so funny to me. Admittedly, it sounds bonkers but sometimes I like commercials more than television shows.  While I wangle a short attention span, I have an advertising degree in custody.  This interesting coupling of traits makes me an ad agencies dream.  Yes Madison Avenue, I am JUST who you are looking for! 

Anyway, here is my new fave commercial. 

Eric Violette is the actor in each of the commercials of campaign. And, no he is not in a real band. Rather, he is a comedian.

The lyrics:  Well I’m shopping for a new car, which one’s me? A cool convertible or an SUV. Too bad I didn’t know my credit was whacked, so I driving off the lot in a used sub-compact.F-R-E-E, that spells “free”, credit report dot com baby. Saw their ads on my TV. Thought about goin’ but was too lazy.Now instead of lookin’ fly I’m looking fat, my legs are sticking to the vinyl and my posse’s getting laughed at.F-R-E-E, that spells “free”, credit report dot com baby…

Okay, I found another commercial that I like. It’s hilarious.  Maybe I am watching more television than I have been disclosing.  The ad I am referring to is the Free Credit Report Dot Com Pirate Commercial.  Doesn’t it make you laugh?

Apparently:  Because of Identity theft, a man is forced to work in fish food restaurant and where a pirate suit. He and fellow scallywags sing about it.

They say a man should always dress for the job he wants
so why am I dressed up like a pirate in this restaurant.
It’s all because some hacker stole my identity.
Now I’m in here every evening serving chowder and iced tea.
Should have gone to (yeehaa!)
I could have seen this coming at me like an atom bomb.
They monitor your credit and send you email alerts.
So you don’t end up selling fish to tourists in t-shirts.

Here’s the real site to get your report:

The singer in the commercial is Eric Violette. It is not a real band, rather he is a comedien.  Correct me if I am wrong, but I think he has done all the Free Credit Report Dot Com Commercials:  NEW CAR, and my favorite, DREAM GIRL.

Okay, since I have had a Statesboro theme lately I can not resist showing you this fine display of South Georgia talent. 

Hell LOW flesh peddlers, your talent search will come to a  halt upon feasting your eyes on this commercial. It’s great to know there are a few souls with aptitude in the Bulloch County area. Who said, “white redneck men can’t dance?”

I have GOT to share this. If you do not do any thing else today, you must find a computer with sound and watch this.  I promise, you are going to smile. It is absolutely ridiculous. 

This one goes out to Amy — my long left the ‘boro, we went to the science fair in the 8th grade, I am super smart, beautiful friend Amy.  You, anyone who lives in Statesboro but does not have cable, former Statesboro residents, and well, just anybody have need to see this.  This is a a real commercial created and aired right here in the ‘boro. You either hate it or you love it.  For those of you who do not live here anymore, this is a reminder of why you relocated.  Yes, this commercial won Northland Cables BEST COMMERCIAL one year.  I am serious.  When this is the cream of the crop, you have a good idea about the quality level of programming we experience in rural Georgia.

So, do you love it, or do you hate it?  I want to know what you think.

I LOVE it. I am just cheesy like that!
